“The advice I am giving always to all my students is above all to study the music profoundly... music is like the ocean, and the instruments are little or bigger islands, very beautiful for the flowers and trees.”- Andrés Segovia, Greatest Classical Guitarist of the 20th Century

THE TRUTH ABOUT MUSIC IN QUOTES
“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” - Plato
Plato certainly knew what he was talking about! The very word music is derived from a Greek word, which means “art of the Muses.” The Greeks respect the idea of muses, who were revered to be the goddesses that inspire creative thought. They are the entities who whisper inspirations for the arts, literature and even the sciences. Muses are like good music that can influence people to reach into the depths of their mind and soul to create beautiful poetry, discover scientific breakthroughs, even make history! Take Albert Einstein. He believed that great scientists are artists themselves. Apart from being a physicist, Einstein was a pianist and violinist. Though not like Bach or Mozart, he attributes his intuition and discovery from his inclination to music. Even the great German Philosopher Friedrich Nietzschehad said,
“God has given us music so that above all it can lead us upwards. Music unites all qualities: it can exalt us, divert us, cheer us up, or break the hardest of hearts with the softest of its melancholy tones. But its principal task is to lead our thoughts to higher things, to elevate, even to make us tremble… The musical art often speaks in sounds more penetrating than the words of poetry, and takes hold of the most hidden crevices of the heart… Song elevates our being and leads us to the good and the true. If, however, music serves only as a diversion or as a kind of vain ostentation it is sinful and harmful. “

“I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.” - Billy Joel
Call Billy Joel’s music old school but once you hear the “Piano Man,” the melody and lyrics strike a cord. You can’t pinpoint but it does. Remember that haunting and yet beautiful music from the movie “Inception”? The music that cues the characters, one played by Leonardo di Caprio, while they are in an induced dream state? That song is entitled “Non Je Ne Regrette Rien” was sang by Edith Piaf, released in 1959 in French. Mainstream audience may never have heard of Edith Piaf or even understand the lyrics but the song resonated to the crowd, even completely associating the French song to the Hollywood blockbuster film.
For centuries, music has played a cultural role in every community whether it is for religious purposes, art or entertainment. During the Middle Ages, music was not even an art but instead a science in relation to the study of natural harmony. The scholars of this period studied music, as part of the liberal arts, like geometry, arithmetic and astronomy. Music throughout different periods persisted and never went away, instead, it kept reinventing itself in every period across cultures and societies. Studies even show that learning to play the music as well as listening to it, keeps the brain active and balance; overall making us in the state of happiness. While playing music helps us improve visual and verbal skills even cognitive learning, listening to the right music, on the other hand, sends dopamine, more known as the “happy hormone,” to our brains. Listening to music also releases endorphins believed to be good for your vascular muscles, especially to your heart. In fact, music is an exercise to the brain that will keep your mind healthy and young. That is the power of music.
Music is part of humanity because we are beings surrounded by sound and what music really is--- is SOUND and HARMONY put together. Whether music is your form to express yourself, your art so to speak or you may be content to be just the listener, the fact is, music brings color to one’s life.
